Thank you, Natalie - what a thorough answer! For me, I was always a bit confused by this as well, until - as you so correctly point out - that nonrestrictive clauses are "nonessential," so I basically think of these terms (nonrestrictive v. nonessential) as being the same - unless you disagree? Thanks again for your explanation!
